Insulated Render - the System.

A typical insulated render system includes the attachment of insulation boards to the existing wall using mechanical fixings (Sometimes accompanied by adhesive) through to the wall. Mesh reinforcement for a key backing to the render base coat followed by a final finish coat to a colour of your choice.

The design and installation of an insulated render system is a specialist job, although the construction techniques remain the same, systems differ through their use of components such as the thickness and type of insulation and the render finishes available. We will of course talk about your requirments in depth and as we deal with the leading suppliers of insulated render you can be sure that we will recommend the very best system for your building and your budget, reducing that all important U value (energy loss) and helping the environment by reducing the carbon footprint.
